The truth: neither the critics nor the public reacted positively to “Cowboy Bebop”, added to the fact that only 21 million hours played during its first week was what the series collected. A figure that, for studies, is insufficient.

In the following week, the series collected 36 million views, in this way, it was demonstrated: its future was marked because, in total, it added less than what the third season of “You” achieved.

The “Cowboy Bebop ” adaptation was reportedly on a budget similar to “Altered Carbon, ” which in 2018 touched the record for the most expensive series in history. And, according to estimates, each chapter of the new Netflix series had a pocket of about 7 million euros.
